At the very heart of a fully functional, successful warehouse lies a well-planned pallet racking system with storage and logistics as key aspects. Before going ahead with the first storage solution you come across, there are a few pointers to consider to help you choose the most effective option for your warehouse.
With costings such as a key factor for any business, making the most of your floor space is essential. Instead of just considering the dimensions of the ground room, think about how you can utilise your vertical space too.

With these in mind, there are a number of options to consider to allow you to maximise space and budget with no compromise on the efficiency of the warehouse.
The most commonly used option, pallet racking is ideal for a wide range of items that need to stored and subsequently dispatched with ease. A forklift is used to lift the pallets, allowing you to make the most of your vertical space. Pallet racking is favoured for its heavy duty shelving, perfect for order picking.
